Book Review: Tea Cups and Carnage by Lynn Cahoon ~ Great Escapes Book Tour + Giveaway!

The kettle’s about to boil over . . .

The quaint coastal town of South Cove, California, is all abuzz about the opening of a new specialty shop, Tea Hee. But as Coffee, Books, and More owner Jill Gardner is about to find out, there’s nothing cozy about murder . . .

Shop owner Kathi Corbin says she came to South Cove to get away from her estranged family. But is she telling the truth? And did a sinister someone from her past follow her to South Cove? When a woman claiming to be Kathi’s sister starts making waves and a dead body is found in a local motel, Jill must step in to clear Kathi’s name—without getting herself in hot water.

First of all, how have I gone this long and not read any of the books in this series? I mean really? To say that I loved this book would be an understatement. I was hooked from the first page and didn’t put it down until I finished the very last page…and then I jumped over to Amazon and one-clicked the other six books in the series. I seriously love the premise of this book, but I am a sucker for any story that combines coffee and books. I really enjoyed reading about the tourist town of South Cove, California and all of the interesting people that make the town unique. I especially loved the names of the businesses, they were so fun and catchy! The characters were fabulous and well written and I can’t wait to get to know them better. The mystery to be solved was a good one and I admit it had me guessing right till then end. Overall, Tea Cups and Carnage is a great novel with a fun storyline! It is definitely a don’t miss!
